U.S. PS Vita memory card pricing revealed

GameStop has revealed it’s pricing for the PlayStation Vita specific memory cards, due out when the console launches on February 22, 2011.

The prices start at $29.99 USD for a mere 4GB card, which is quite expensive as you can purchase a standard MicroSD card for around $31 USD depending on where you shop.

The price only increases from thereon, with the 8GB, 16GB and 32GB PS Vita specific card going for $44.99, $69.99 and $119.99 USD respectively.

The sad part about this is that the PS Vita memory cards are proprietary to the console, and there has not yet been any "off-brand" alternatives announced.

So it would seem that gamers expecting to upgrade their storage space are in for some hefty expenses after the initial console purchase.
